Joseph F. Kovar
‘We really started this company to take this industry to the next level and really deliver the best experience with Zoom. So we really worked very closely with Zoom on the engineering side, the product development side, as well as the market side, to deliver on that,’ says Neat CEO Simen Teigre.
Can you talk about your biggest deal so far, even if you can’t say the customer name?
We have several large deals. The banking and financial sector is a very interesting one. We have several of the largest banks in the world who are some of the largest customers on Zoom, and they have standardized on Neat devices for their office spaces and have deployed hundreds and hundreds of Neat Bars and Neat Boards around the world. This has been a very, very exciting and interesting challenge for us because they want to deploy the devices in 30, 40-plus countries around the world.
One of your customers is the President and Vice President of the United States, right? Can you talk about that deal and how it happened?
It’s really exciting of course to be selected by the President. And especially in these times to be able to support his efforts to with Operation Warp Speed and everything that’s going on in the Oval Office. It’s really a close collaboration with Zoom, our channel partners, and the White House, making sure that they have Neat products to support them. They have a Neat Board in the Oval Office. We can actually see it in official photos and videos coming out of there.
Who was the channel partner who did that deal?
I’m not sure I’m at liberty to disclose any details.
